Ceros has been chosen as one of the UK’s smartest businesses by a judging panel including Dragons Den’s Deborah Meaden. The ‘Smarta 100’ recognises the UK’s most exciting and disruptive businesses, and Ceros was described as “the fix that the digital publishing world has been looking for”.

The judges include Deborah Meaden, Michael Birch (founder of Bebo), Charlie Mullins (founder of Pimlico Plumbers) and Sahar Hashemi (founder of Coffee Republic). They were particularly impressed by how the interactive publication platform is more technically advanced and boasts more monetary success stories for a new media format, than any other on the web.

Deborah Meaden commented:

"Discovering great new businesses is a passion of mine as is encouraging businesses to think and work better. The Smarta 100 does both of these things - and celebrates the best of British business at the same time. I was delighted to see ambitious people saving hard and raising finances to turn their ideas into flourishing businesses".

Ceros clients include Sky, Virgin Media, BT, Thomas Cook, Sears, Best Buy, Ikea, Dell, LoveFilm and publishers such as Dennis, Future, Haymarket, Conde Nast, IPC and Bauer. The team work with clients creatively and commercially to make their titles a success.
